Glenn Maxwell continues to impress in the ongoing Big Bash League, taking a freakish catch in Melbourne derby on Friday.
The Melbourne Stars’ Maxwell managed to hang onto the grab after a juggle, dismissing the Renegades’ Tim Ludeman on the bowling of Jackson Coleman for 13.
Maxi was at full stretch to stop Ludeman’s powerful cut shot with his right hand before safely completing the catch.

WHAT. A. CATCH!

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, who has called for Maxwell’s inclusion in the national team, said on Channel 10, “If he (Maxwell) is not one of the best fielders in the world, I’m not here. A super catch.” “That is a screamer.”
His fellow commentator Mark Howard described Maxwell as a “freak”.
